Aldi on hiring spree
Aldi is posting the hiring sign in an economy with a low unemployment rate and where some companies are struggling to find employees.
This September and October, ALDI is looking to hire more than 1,000 permanent positions across various store locations, warehouses and corporate roles, according to a press release the Batavia, Ill.-based retailer recently released.
Aldi, which offers a 90 percent assortment of private brands, has been named to Forbes’ list of “America’s Best Large Employers” for three years in a row.
With Aldi investing more than $5.3 billion to remodel and expand to 2,500 stores by the end of 2022, the company said it will add 25,000 new jobs in stores, warehouses and offices with “industry-leading compensation and generous benefits packages.”
“While many retailers are closing locations and facing a challenging retail climate, Aldi is expanding in every core area of our business, particularly our stores and warehouses,” said Jason Hart, CEO of Aldi U.S., in a statement. “We invite job seekers to be part of the largest expansion the company has seen as we advance our mission to help more than 100 million people save money on high-quality food every month by 2022.”
